I have been going through my CD collection again. I found this Dylan show which I’ve apparently never posted before. I must have missed it the first time I went through my collection all those years ago. Unfortunately like most of my CDs I have no source info for it. They did come with several Phil Lesh songs from his set on CD1 (the second Cryptical through Franklin’s Tower I think). It seemed ridiculous to only post a few songs from the Phil set so I went on the Archive and found the rest of his set. The source info above is for the Phil Lesh show, not Bob. This does mean you get two versions of the last part of Phil’s set but I don’t imagine anyone will complain about that.

On a realated note I am trying to go through all my CDs and rip all Bob and Van shows, plus various other things that look interesting. So you can look forward to that in the upcoming weeks.

This is a rather ragged recording, and might only satisfy the
completists of collectors. All cuts are probably from the master, as
indicated at deadlists. Sound Forge was used to normalize, correct
the pitch, and for minor edits.

–most of Sittin’ On Top Of The World is missing
–several minutes are clipped off of Morning Dew

mbrown02’s recent repost of Trenton ’74 reminded us that we were sitting on an alternate recording of the show. In fact, based on the data on Brucebase and to the best of our knowledge (though CB and JK might know better), Trenton may well be the first Springsteen show ever to be recorded by two different tapers, therefore making it the first two-source Bruce gig ever.

The Big A recorded Bruce several times in 1974-75, most notably the wonderful Philadelphia 11/1/74 recording and the earliest known capture of Max and Roy in the band from Kean College, 9/22/74. While he did not have high-end equipment, he got a very solid result here, arguably as good as Kivak’s previously circulated recording. Samples provided.

Not surprisingly, however, neither tape is complete, as the Big A missed the end of the show. We’ve added the missing songs from Kivak’s master to the Big A recording, as well as patching Kivak’s “Kitty’s Back” (which is cut on Kivak’s master), using the Big A source, for a bonus track. The result is two baseline recordings of the show, each made complete by patches from the other.

Needless to say this is a fantastic show from an other worldly era in Springsteen’s career. It includes an early cover of Dylan’s “I Want You,” a jaw-dropping “New York City Serenade” and the embryonic “Jungleland” with Suki Lahav on cello to name but a few highlights.

Thanks to The Big A for lending JEMS his masters. It isn’t easy to find new sources circa 1974-75 and he has provided several. Also big ups to mjk5510 for assembling this and doing the final release prep.

JEMS is very pleased to issue this previously uncirculated recording
of an historically important and otherwise unheard show.

The recording from Kean College in Union, NJ is now the earliest
document we have of the “new look” E Street Band featuring Max
Weinberg on drums and Roy Bittan on piano. According to the essential
Brucebase Wiki, this free, outdoor show (which took place behind the
student center) was the fourth date played by the new line-up,
predating by 12 days Avery Fisher Hall, October 4, which had been the
first circulating recording with Max and Roy.

It gives us a fascinating glimpse into a period of transition for
Springsteen. As such, some of the arrangements heard here are
distinctive as the reconfigured band sorts out how to play the “basic”
set. While Bruce had previously performed songs in early 1974 that
would later appear on Born to Run, the only new material essayed at
Kean is a unique version of the Born to Run outtake “A Love So Fine,”
still in such an embryonic state that the chorus sung isn’t “a love so
fine” at all, but another title rumored to have been recorded for BTR:
“A Night Like This.” He also tags the end of the song with several
lyrics from the Isley Brothers’ “Shout.” According to Brucebase, by
the time the song is played again at Avery Fisher, the chorus had
changed to “A Love So Fine” for keeps.

The Kean tape also captures the earliest known cover of Sam Cooke’s
“Cupid” and a particularly punchy full-band version of “For You,” a
song Springsteen performed solo throughout most of 1974-75. Nearly
every track here is a little different than you’re used to given that
two of the band members are still learning their parts.

Our generous taper, The Big A, says he used a “standard-for-the-time,
no-frills, fat-paperback-sized Radio Shack-type tape recorder with a
built-in mike” to record the show. That description seems to match the
tape, which has hallmarks of ALC (automatic level control) where the
first note of a song starts out loud and a bit distorted before the
level adjusts. There are some distorted frequencies in the recording
and it is not as good as the very best we have of the era. But
considering the circumstances (it was the first Bruce show he ever
taped), the outdoor venue, the gear, the PA volume, etc. it is quite a
listenable document of the performance. We worked hard to improve the
sound, but most of what you hear is just what it is. Samples provided.

Very special thanks to The Big A for loaning JEMS the master tape and
to the ER Archive, who had a copy of the show that helped lead us to
the master.

Thank you, you’re great. You all feel pretty good tonight huh? Oh heaven, I wish I felt that
good. If I stay here long enough I might feel that good. Oh yeah? All right! So, how you
doing? How far you’d come? Is that right? I might be acting a little strange right now.
That’s because this is a mighty strange place. Oh yes, it is. I ain’t seen nowhere like
this. Back in the dressing room there, I got a black mirror in my room! I was looking
through it just half an hour ago, I see two eyes looking back at me.
(before Man Gave Names To All The Animals)

Thank you. You feeling all right? Am I singing on key tonight? Iíll try sing this one for
you in key. (before Girl Of The North Country)

Thank you. Anybody here tonight paid to get in? What? I can’t hear you. Talk up, yeah. I’m
glad you’re sitting there. Phew! (before Ballad Of A Thin Man)

We’re gonna do this song here. The songwriter who wrote it is here tonight. Thereís a lot
of famous people here tonight. I wanna just tell you that you may be sitting next to
somebody that’s famous. I know you are. You definitely are. That man over there’s famous
too, yes he is. (plays Let’s Begin) I hope we did that right Jim.

It’s easy to say that, but hard to do it. Any gambling men out there? I guess there should
be. Yeah! Don’t you have a big gambling resort around here somewhere. What’s it called?
What’s that gambling town around here? Reno? Atlantic City. Big gambling town, yeah? Well
here’s a gambling song for you gambling men. Gambling women too. I don’t think any women
are gamblers though do you? (before Gamblin’ Man)

It’s a hard rainís a-gonna fall. Well, what happens when hard rain falls? You get
watered-down love! This is off a big hit selling album. I’m not sure if it’s still in print
but …, oh yeah. Oh boy.

All right, all right. I want to play …. We had a single record released a while back.
I think it sold about five copies. But I like it so much I just got to play it. Anyway, it
sold about three copies right here. (before Heart Of Mine)

All right. I wanna say hello to all the editors of Rolling Stone magazine, oh yeah. All the
writers and editors are here tonight I think, checking me out. They’re gonna come back
stage later, I’m gonna check them out. (before When You Gonna Wake Up)

All right, hello. Thank you. I wanna say hello to Mr. and Mrs. Kooper who are out there
tonight. Wherever they are, I wanna say greetings! I’m glad you could make it. Anyway this
is Mr. and Mrs. Kooper’s relative on keyboards over here. A man I’ve known for quite some
time now. I’m not gonna tell you his name but that’s him on keyboards. I should tell you
his name anyway. Al Kooper is his name. Played with me twenty years. Maybe some of you
heard of him, maybe some of you haven’t. A legend in his own time though. On the drums
tonight, Jimmy Lee Keltner from Tulsa, Oklahoma. From New Jersey, state of I think he’s
from, Ashbury Park, New Jersey, on the guitar, Steve Ripley. On the other guitar,
Fred Tackett. All right, on the guitar, bass guitar Tim Drummond. On the backing vocals,
Clydie, Regina, and Madelyn Quebec. On the other set of drums, also from New Jersey is
Arthur Rosoto. Give Arthur Rosoto a big hand. I hope I sung something on key tonight,
I really do. (at the end of In The Garden)
